Tripwire, Inc. has announced that Dwayne Melancon, chief technology officer, will participate in an Industrial Control System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ICS-ISAC) web-based seminar entitled “Where, Oh, Where is the Knowledge to Share?”

As threats against critical infrastructure continue to grow, industry experts must investigate the possible sources and application of knowledge necessary to improve security.

Chris Blask, ICS-ISAC chair, will facilitate the webinar. Dwayne Melancon, Zach Dexter, founder of Databracket, and Steven Parker, president of EnergySec, will discuss steps professionals can take and implement to further secure industrial control systems.

In this webinar attendees will learn:

  • The various kinds of knowledge brought to critical infrastructure security by both the public and private sectors
  • How asset owners can effectively use knowledge shared with them
  • Steps vendors can take to enable and support knowledge sharing

“Tripwire’s contribution to the Situational Awareness Reference Architecture (SARA) being developed by the ICS-ISAC and its members will substantially improve industrial asset owners’ ability to create and apply knowledge,” said Mr. Blask.

“When responsible vendors like Tripwire take this kind of leadership role, our combined ability to secure infrastructure is within reach.”

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, July 17, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

About the Industrial Control System Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ICS-ISAC)

ICS-ISAC is a horizontal ISAC with a mission to capture and transport critical cybersecurity information between vertical ISACs and impacted parties.

Industrial Control Systems are the electronic systems used to operate physical processes ranging from power generation and distribution to building operations, healthcare, transportation, manufacturing and agriculture.

The United States Department of Homeland Security segments national Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CIKR) into 16 sectors, each of which relies on the safe operation of Industrial Control Systems.

The ICS-ISAC was established by ICS Cybersecurity, Inc. with the support of industry organizations including Amor Group, SAIC, CSC, IBM, Yokogawa, Invensys, Emerson and others.
